Love Books Exchange - Biscuit Bear

Pin It

Recently we signed up for the Love Books Summer Book Exchange hosted by The Educator's Spin on It - the idea is you pick a favourite book, put together a craft activity inspired by the story and send it off to your swap partner. We got lucky when we were paired with Taming the Goblin - little Goblin is just a month younger than Vinnie, and I love reading about their fun and adventures!

The story we received was 'Biscuit Bear' by Mini Grey - it is supercute, plus it won the Smarties Gold Award and reading 10 award winning books is one of our Bucket List goals this Summer.

The story is about a little gingerbread bear - so we also received some bear shaped cookie cutters, cookie mix in a jar and a bunch of sprinkles, smarties and edible glitter to decorate our creations with!

The jar of icing sugar says 'Dear Mr Policeman, despite my suspicious appearance I am in fact innocent icing sugar, to be mixed with water and food colouring and placed on biscuits. Yours I.S.' - I actually snorted when I read this!

We also received the bits and pieces to make this Bongo the Dog sock puppet who scares the little Biscuit Bear away - the kids were in full on squeal mode at this!

Vinnie hard at work mixing up our biscuit bears... 

... and some of our finished creations. I can't tell you how much fun this package was, but I think this pic sums it up...

We have our package ready to go, just need to head to the Post Office and send it off tomorrow! I can't wait to see the fun that Taming the Goblin gets up to with our story!
